We had a great experience celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Saddle Room. We were seated on the patio per our request, which was a great setting on a beautiful evening for our dinner. Our server was very friendly and attentive and offer very good recommendations. The Saddle Room also provided a complimentary dessert and a toast to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely return again - whether for dinner or just for a drink during happy hour.
